calls were made to one of the victims phone
few minutes after the collapse, there was no
response.
One of the survivors, Toheeb Gbadamosi,

working at this place. I just came around in
order to raise some money for my upkeep
because things were difficult. I thank God
that I came out of the rubble alive”.
